Moodle 2 is really stable and with some research is reasonably easy to modify. You do need to brush up on your PHP skills and also understand the way it pulls in CSS and HTML from several files – there is an amazing array of customisation that is available from server administration which includes creating a custom menu.

I have just customised the footer of http://talkmedicalonline.co.uk – take a look !

The appearance of the front page is very easy to edit – mainly use frontpage.php and then go from there – if you cant find the correct layout PHP file just check to see if the standard template is providing some input.

More to do – will blog some findings ….

Hi Team

Prevent most casual users right click and copy your images and copy –  put in your html and you cant right click -of course clever users will find away around but it prevents most users stealing your content and protected images

Copy and paste the following code, and make sure it comes right after your <HEAD> tag:

<script language=JavaScript> var message=”Function Disabled!”; function clickIE4(){ if (event.button==2){ alert(message); return false; } } function clickNS4(e){ if (document.layers||document.getElementById&&!document.all){ if (e.which==2||e.which==3){ alert(message); return false; } } } if (document.layers){ document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN); document.onmousedown=clickNS4; } else if (document.all&&!document.getElementById){ document.onmousedown=clickIE4; } document.oncontextmenu=new Function(“alert(message);return false”) </script>

Disable Copy and Paste for greater website security.

Below is a little trick that will stop your visitors from copying and pasting your webpage information.

Add the following html code to your BODY tag:

<body bgcolor=”#FFFFFF” ondragstart=”return false” onselectstart=”return false”>

I am trying to safeguard my hard hard work

Cheers Casey

Compression – the ups and downs !

HI team

Thesis work – Talk Medical online http://talkmedicalonline.co.uk

I have been cleansing code and compressing ! 27 % improvement in site speed but there are issues .

  1. Do not compress and combine CSS And JS files too hastily – you need to have clean uncompressed versions ready as it will all break – defo guaranteed and 100%
  2. Use minifyjs for javascript and code beautify for css – these seem to break your work less than the others applications out there
  3. Test lots and then restore to uncompressed as you wont be able to edit a thing after all your code squeezing activities

And then test to see how luxury and fast your results are – I still have a lot of small tweaks to make but things are improving

Good luck
